With the Roosevelt-Garner ticket sure, the big job ahead is the Democratic plank and to find substitutions for the legislation nullified by the Supreme Court should the ticket be successful in the fall elections - which augurs to be one of the bitterest fights of recent years." sound of cheering and Barkley speaking (some parts silent in this partial newsreel without narration)

Newsreel footage from the 1936 Democratic National Convention, featuring a speaker praising FDR and citing religion as justification for his policies. This is typical political speech-making, but it does have historical value. And lots of democrats cheer, so the title is accurate.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
